Resilience, Yes


reflect on this year and manifest what’s next

One Word. Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?”

Resilience– “…the property of a material to absorb energy when it is deformed elastically and then, upon unloading to have this energy recovered.” Wikipedia. “1620s, from L. resiliens, prp. of resilire ‘to rebound, recoil,’ from re- ‘back’ + salire ‘to jump, leap.'” Etymology.

I have been elastically deformed over and over this year, and yet, I’ve jumped back with more energy than ever.

Yes– I said yes to new opportunities that terrified me.
